Storyline

The Surete Commissioner assigns Inspector Clouseau and Sergeant Deux-Deux to spend a night in the Louvre gallery in hope of catching the Blotch, a notorious art thief, in the act of stealing paintings. The Blotch looks like an ink blot and can change his form to blend into any surroundings, and Clouseau and Deux-Deux are unable to locate him even as he swipes huge paintings from behind their backs and loads the paintings onto a truck. The Commissioner is furious when the Louvre is entirely fleeced and orders Clouseau and Deux-Deux to repaint every missing masterpiece! Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

'Arty' More Than Funny
14 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Inspector and partner Deux-Deux must spend a night in the famous art museum, the Louvre, because they suspect "The Blotch," a famous criminal, to steal paintings. This criminal, like some of the others earlier in this colorful series, is not human but someone or something that can change shapes in a second. He can be a splash of water or a human, almost like the villain in "Terminator 2."

The humor is the different methods the crook uses to steal the paintings underneath the noses of our dimwitted good guys, Clouseau and Deux-Deaux, who act clueless.

The artwork comes in two forms in this animated short: the usual colorful stuff and small reproductions of real-life art, such as a Rembrandt.

This isn't really that funny, not like the normal Pink Panther cartoons, but they still serve as entertainment and certainly are colorful to watch. It's on the DVD "The Pink Panther Classic Cartoon Collection, Vol. 6 - Inspector Cartoons."
